4 Ways to Prepare for a Baby on the Move

I knew this day would come, but I didn’t know how soon. Macks is officially mobile. Although he’s not crawling yet, he’s definitely on the move. From rolling around all over the floor to getting up on all fours and lunging himself forward, he can get from one place to another in no time. Soon enough, all of the days of easily putting him on his activity mat and running into the kitchen to quickly grab something are no more. Baby life is about to get a little bit more interesting.

Adventures with First Foods

We just started Macks on solids at the beginning of the month. At six months, I thought he was really ready for solids. He was always reaching for my food and trying to put it in his mouth and took a huge interest when he would sit with us at the table during dinner time. 

5 Ways Siblings Can Help with the Baby

Thanks to Disney Baby for sponsoring this post and giving me Huggies Little Movers diapers for free. 

One of the great things about having two other children around is their desire to help me with Macks. My oldest daughter is always asking how she can help me with her brother. She’s not old enough to do the big stuff, but there is a lot that she can help me with. I love getting them involved with their little brother. Not only is it a great way to help build their relationship, but it also is a great way to teach them responsibility. Check out some of the ways that I get them involved in helping me with their little brother. 

Magical Moments from Macks' Sixth Month

Macks is six months old! This month brought so many favorite moments for me. I’m watching as Macks is forming his own little personality. He loves to be held, entertained by his sisters, and is just starting to figure out how to be mobile. I’m treasuring these last few bits of summer that I have with all three of my children before two of them go off to school. I know that Macks will miss having them around during the day because he has really loved all of the things that they do to make him laugh. Most of my best memories of this month are with Macks and his sisters playing with one another. Check out some of my favorite moments from Macks’ sixth month!

9 Mickey Mouse Favorites for Baby

Macks has quickly fallen in love with Mickey Mouse. He has a Mickey Mouse toy that is his absolute favorite and keeps him entertained longer than any other toy we have. I’ve even noticed that he will quickly focus his attention on the television if he notices his sisters are watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse in the morning.

As a Mickey Mouse fan myself, I am so happy that he’s found the love of the Mouse too. There are so many cute Mickey Mouse themed toys, books, clothes, and more for babies, that I wanted to share some of my favorites.
